Khris Davis left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury.

Davis swung awkwardly on a strikeout in his first at-bat. Gerardo Parra replaced him in left field the following inning. We should have an update on his status shortly.
May 30 - 4:46 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Bud Norris (bronchitis) will be used as a starter when he returns from the disabled list.

Norris has already made a pair of rehab starts and could be back in the big leagues by next week. Showalter said he will not entertain the possibility of a six-man rotation. None of this is good news for Mike Wright, who struggled last time out against the White Sox (5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER).
May 30 - 4:30 PM

David Ortiz is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

Manager John Farrell gave Ortiz a couple days off to clear his head. He's batting in his usual No. 3 spot behind Mookie Betts and ahead of Hanley Ramirez. The 39-year-old has hit just .200 this month with a .322 slugging percentage.
May 30 - 4:19 PM

Xander Bogaerts (forearm) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rangers.

Bogaerts took a pitch off his left forearm Thursday and is still feeling a bit sore. Brock Holt will start at shortstop and bat seventh. Bogaerts is hitless on Boston's road trip (0-for-15).
May 30 - 4:12 PM

Kevin Correia is expected to be granted his release by the Giants, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

Correia had a June 1 opt out. Even with all of the Giants' injuries, he hadn't been called up to the majors yet this season. He had a 3.58 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Sacramento.
May 30 - 4:11 PM

Xander Bogaerts is getting Saturday off because of soreness in his bruised left forearm.

Bogaerts left Thursday's game after a HBP, and while he played Friday, he obviously was less than 100 percent. Brock Holt will fill in at shortstop tonight.
May 30 - 4:09 PM

Jeff Bianchi declined an assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket and became a free agent.

Bianchi was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Thursday. He'll take a look and see if anyone else needs a utilityman.
May 30 - 4:07 PM

Braves signed catcher Ryan Lavarnway to a minor league contract.

Jose Yepez landed on the DL in Triple-A, so the Braves needed an extra catcher around. Lavarnway was let go by the Orioles earlier this week.
